Bunyips,

"What is a Bunyip?" you ask. 

If you google "what is a bunyip" this is what you will get:

The bunyip is a large mythical creature from Australian Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. The origin of the word bunyip has been traced to the Wemba-Wemba or Wergaia language of Aboriginal people of South-Eastern Australia.


What they neglect to tell you is that bunyips are responsible for so many daily difficulties!

Feel like you are being watched? Bunyips! They are quite evasive, you won't see them easily but you will feel their cold chill sending goosebumps down your neck and spine just before their teeth sink into your flesh.

Socks disappearing in the washing? The bunyips are hungry, they have a voracious appetite for odd socks (when they can't get odd humans).

Phone book missing? A bunyip will have taken it down to the bottom of it's billabong for nesting purposes. Beware! This means baby bunyips are on their way!

Toilet seat up? Bunyips can shape-shift and sneak into your house through your sewerage pipes. They are notorious for bumping the seat up as they come through.

The last piece of mint chocolate missing from the fridge? Okay, that was me.
